Convert special characters

Hi all!!

I've a problem with special characters; I need to change some strings that contains special characters (accents, ñ,...) to other strings without them.

Habitación to Habitacion

I can not use 'TRANSLATE' sentence because I don't know exactly which are these characters, so I need something more generic.

Anybody knows some FM to solve that issue, please?

Thanks anyway!!

as required. When you test the function module in SE37, make sure that you put a check in the checkbox Uppercase/Lowercase.

Kind regards,
